So a mate of mine asked me if I could paint up his Dark Elf army for him. Thought, why not.. can't be that large of an army right?
Wrong.. but at least I am learning how to paint purple, am working on my metal technique, and my skin recipe has almost been perfected for TT+ quality.
His wants were simple. Dark, mostly purple, and to have some differences between the units, but in the end have them look coherent.
The army consists of ( so far, as he keeps adding to it while I am painting it ):
-20 Cold One Riders
-37 Black Guard
-2 Hydras ( from Bane Beasts )
-Cauldron of Blood
-Hero on Monster
-Hero on Cold One
So just a few models to paint up. :roll:
Below are some photos of the models, plus the links to my blog that show more details such as what colors I used, and more photos where available also.
First Unit. Made as the test unit for the rest of the army's color scheme:

Things in the pipeline now are the Harpies, and Black Guard. Should be coming up on the blog soon enough, but will also post some teasers here also.
